Thomas Studach

Malans Pinot Noir 2015

A brilliant effort, the 2015 Malanser Pinot Noir from iconic winemaker Thomas Studach is game on. Medium ruby, the nose reveals intense aromas of wild strawberry, ripe red and black cherry, wood smoke and menthol. The palate delivers a full-body, excellent levels of ripe and juicy red fruit, fine grained tannins and fresh acidity. A gorgeous Swiss Pinot from a generous vintage. Drink from 2025 until 2035. — 3 months ago

Complex nose of spice and lovely cherries. Some charred wood. Complex and deep minerality. Really compelling aromas. Herbal, medicinal. Silky, sweet and elegant. Complex, energetic and intense with lovely and complex tannins. Closed. Grippy. Good acids and freshness. But tannins maybe a bit much? Will they integrate more? Juicy and clean.

After 6 hours this went from a 9.1 to a 9.5. Nose is crazy floral and exotic with stunning cherry flower. Superb earthiness and leafiness. Sweet fruit and finesse and so linear. Nimble and elegant. Sappy and pure. Long finish.

Palate is fruity. Somewhat high dosage but delicious. Sort of Marie demets tradition. — 10 months ago

Blinded. The table was split on its origin - it was between Germany or France. I leaned towards the latter in my guess, but found it hard to place it in any of the Burgundy villages. A Coteaux Champenois perhaps?

Can’t say I was too surprised when it was revealed to be a Swiss Pinot Noir, but it sure stumped everyone (I encountered a very similar situation in my first meeting with Gantenbein’s now famed Swiss Pinot’s - very Burgundian yet hard to place). Clearly a very animating Pinot. Very fine pure fruit of sour cherries and blackberries. It also features notes of cloves, pepper, dried roses, and hints of smoke and oak toast. The palate was juicy with a rather impressive mid-palate concentration, which really gained with air. The finish tightens up with salty-acidic minerality and a touch of pleasant bitterness. Delicious!

@Nicolas Greinacher With my small sample size, I can agree wholeheartedly 😂 Unfortunately, they’re not the easiest to come by nor the cheapest.

Barrique Jenins Pinot Noir

Nose is gorgeous. Beautifully floral.

Superbly clean. Light juicy cherry fruit. Hint of spice. not super complex or dense.

Almost like the best Bourgogne rouge ever.

Maienfeld Pinot Noir 2018

Transparent wild red berry and tamarind juice. Notes of chestnut lead into a palate that is juicy, with silky tannins. A biscuity, salty, delicious pinot with remarkable structure to boot. — 6 months ago

Fläscher Chardonnay 2018

Not only the best Swiss Chardonnay but worldwide. Smokey, chalky, long burn wonderful. Too little available and even less to get your hands on. Puts many burgundies to shame. — 9 months ago
